Such awful news. Karl Shiels was an amazing champion of Irish theatre. He gave many young actors a great start with the Theatre Upstairs at Lanigans and was as likely to attend the smallest, newest show to support as the big opening nights. A formidable man and a great one. RIP. https://t.co/0wMzKY9OWH
